Computer Science Carnival
CS Education week is designed to encourage and create awareness around computing, which is becoming an essential skill as important as reading and arithmetic. Computational thinking practices help students to problem solve and think critically. Teachers can use the Computer Science Carnival document during CS Education week to create excitement in elementary and middle school aged students for learning computational thinking skills. We encourage teachers to engage students in these activities and participate in CS Education week, which takes place the first week of December. Sign up at csedweek.org.
